The only problem I see is the camaro input shaft (I don't think it will interchange with the Mustang counter shaft), use the Mustang input shaft...
Ok, here ya go. I forgot I added about a 2" section of angle iron so it would fit. I also had to add a plate from cross member to trans mount so...
Give me a minute, I'll go take pics of mine. I made it out of 1 x 2 and it bolts in the original location.
Yep your correct, thats what early morning posting will get me, M5R2 is the correct, and M5OD-R1 is in the ranger, either way neither are T-5's
That is the M5R2 or the M0R2 totally different than the T-5. The T-5 was made by Borg-Warner or Tremmec depending on years.
Even the 2011 T-5 don't have an integral bellhousing, they all unbolt and they all use the same trans to bellhousing bolt pattern after 1993.
Ya they can delete the thread.
I thought with all the questions I see about T-5 on how to rebuild them, and just questions in general I would...
We drove it over on Friday for its maiden voyage. Pulled down 22mpg @ 80 mph. Only had to tighten one brake line and adjust the kickdown cable...
336 is a constant, its basically a mile in seconds divided by Pi.
We were there Friday, gonna have to go for the full event next year.

Ya might wanna do some more research..
Right off of Eatons website.

That isn't 5th gear driven, that's a syncronizer.
Your not installing it backwards are ya? The step (part without teeth) goes up towards snap ring groove. If that isn't it check the index keys...
Posi units don't have clutches, Limited slips do.....
And you really shouldn't use the word ANY, I bet I can take a open and make both wheels...
Well it looks like I'm going whether I want to or not. My work has a spot upstairs and told me I'm taking one of my vehicles, problem is its not...
I'd love to take the wagon but its not done yet. I'll be there again this year to watch though.
Those are on my buddys property, lucky ya didn't get shot.
T5s sold in "later" Mustangs were tilted, earlier ones were not.
I've rebuilt over 100 of these things and have my hands in them on a daily...
I'd just take the shifter off the trans, heat it up right below the bolt holes for the shifter handle and bend it 7* the other way, problem...
